The nose on this special sake that uses a Nara rice varietal Tsuyuhakaze milled to 80% is a wicked collection of yeast, banana bread, berries, moss, ripe pear, lemon-lime, lychee, papaya, and earthy aromas. This is the sister brew to the ever-popular “Wind of the Woods”, but it is "complexity-on-steroids" in sake terminology. There is so much in each sip! Is it too complex? Heck no, because it drinks so flavorful and fun. Zesty, crisp, clean, deep, and impactful, "Black Label" drinks with deep roots. Look for apple, pear, strawberry, grape, tangerine, lime juice, powdered sugar, steamed rice, and a plump umami ending. The best part of the sip is the Calpico™-like creamy soda and steamed rice combination that spritzes through the palate. This is a brew that drinks you as much as you drink it, and it does well at several temperatures and different sized vessels. WORD: Complex WINE: Thinking Reds/Zesty Whites BEER: Zesty Ales FOODS: Yakitori with salt, grilled fish, cheese board, bar snacks, and charcuterie.
